Many of today’s generation are extremely tech-savvy and whilst those in their senior years may not be as au fait with the latest gadgets, they can still use the internet to research different retirement options. There is a wealth of information available online so it pays to spend a little time reading about the choices you have before you.
You may wish to downsize in order to release a little capital. In order to do this you will need to begin by putting your existing abode on the market. Once you have completed the task at hand, you will then need to address the issue of finding somewhere new to live. Renting an apartment may be a much better option than buying somewhere outright or entering a care home, especially if you still want your independence. A retirement apartment is a great option to look into and whilst there may be a carer on hand to assist you with everyday activities you can use their services as much or as little as you want.

Look! I am wearing things!
Top: Gwynnie Bee // Jeans: Old Navy skinnies // Boots: Torrid wide calf Ginger fold-over boots
I bought my new boots at Torrid a few weeks ago and discovered that my mall has remodeled several storefronts into one GIANT Forever21, carrying the men’s line AND plus line. Well… let’s face it. There goes all my money as I fall down the fast fashion blogger trap that is the awesome F21. Even John likes their stuff! I have to remind myself (often) that quality still trumps quantity.
Speaking of quality… I could have cuddled up in this top from Gwynnie Bee. It was so soft and comfy… and opaque, unlike many drapey tops. It’s perfect for a day out shopping with jeans, a night at my MIL’s watching TV in comfy ponte knit pants, or going out with patterned tights and an above-the-knee skirt. Bonus: also work appropriate!
Here’s another sneak peek at my upcoming show, A Christmas Story. All costuming done by my friend Stacey, who also does all types of costumes and dress-making (even kilts and wedding dresses!) at A Touch of Magic Costumes by Creatively Tink.

This is why I’ve been so MIA lately… I’ve been directing the Christmas show at my theatre and we’ve been working on A Christmas Story. You know- the classic “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!”
I am so proud of my cast and crew for pulling together an amazing, heartwarming show that brings new life to the familiar characters. I will see you readers soon… as soon as this and finals are over.
